Agnes Colander - An Attempt At Life archiveThe role played by Harley Granville Barker in the development of modern British Theatre is impossible to overestimate. It is three years since Agnes, an artist, left her unfaithful husband Henry. Now he writes to her in her Kensington studio begging to reunite, but Agnes married young; her innocence has gone and her ambition and independence is growing. As she travels from London to France, Agnes finds herself torn between Otho, a worldly Danish artist and Alec, an infatuated younger suitor between a longing to paint and be an independent woman and a yearning to be loved. This witty and compelling exploration of love, sexual attraction and independence was written in 1900 and unearthed among Granville Barker's papers in the British Library a century later. Based on the original production at the Ustinov Studio, Theatre Royal, Bath
Performers Naomi Frederick (Agnes Colander), Sally Scott, Matthew Flynn, Harry Lister-Smith, Cindy-Jane Armbruster.
